|Vase + Face + Vase Face|
Here is my painting for Day #14 of Leslie Saeta's painting challenge. For this week, I have been studying/interpreting paintings by Picasso.
Here is a photo I took from the book I was using entitled "Picasso" Text by Robert Fisher, Edited by Theodore Reff and published by Tudor.
The name of this painting is: "Face and Pitcher" 1937, Oil. And the description reads as follows: "An evocative juxtaposition of object and face, the latter half-transformed into an object itself." Now is that totally cool or what. The shadowing on her face is the shadow of the pitcher(vase). Get it? Vase Face!! I was so thrilled to see that, and instantly had another 'light bulb' moment to paint my painting for today.
I am calling my painting "Vase + Face = Vase Face".
I'm telling ya, I am having TOO much fun with my Picasso Week!! Tomorrow will start week three, and I am not really sure what I will paint for week three just yet.
Hope you enjoy today's painting.
Here are some of my all time favorite 'Vase Faces":
Happy Painting! Cheers! and... Break a Bristle.
